4th of July is time to celebrate the shot-taking efforts of our founding fathers, and what better way to do so than with a tequila brand that knows a thing or two about taking shots and breaking traditions…Hornitos Tequila has two cocktails that are perfect for the holiday ~ whether you want to mix up a festive red cocktail with Hornitos’ Watermelon Paloma or batch a tequila beer cocktail so you can spend more time enjoying the BBQ and less time making drinks.
No matter how you prefer to spend the holiday weekend or what you choose to drink as you spend time eating, mingling with friends and family or watching the fireworks, have a fantastic Fourth of July weekend!
